Now open for on-farm sales, Apr. - Dec., and dedicated to being a neighborhood source for fresh, organic products. I am a grower of organic produce, cut flowers, herbs, and plants. I have been growing organically here for 35 years. I also keep a flock of heritage breed laying hens. I was first certified organic at the inception of the National Organic Program in 2001.
Suburbia is encroaching on all sides here, but this has been a small farm for over 150 years and I maintain an island of sound productivity and sustainability in the midst of it -- for our benefit and for that of our neighbors. Welcome to all of my new neighbors.
I grow a very wide variety of produce which includes hardneck garlic, special potatoes, bramble fruits, celery, and other not-so-common crops. I specialize in greens, salad mixes, cut flowers, and heirloom and hard to find crops, including seed garlic.
Hungry Toad Farm offers produce and eggs on-farm, and at Centerville Farmers Market. The Centerville Farmers Market is open from 2:30 PM to 6:30PM each Thursday June through October. The Market is located at Rt. 48 and Spring Valley Rds., in front of Auto Zone and the Dollar General Store/
